Recent highlights:

     Monday was more food fun at work, with Shelley bringing in blueberry muffins she'd made to celebrate her birthday early, and then a few of us having a 'Taco Day' with a run on the Taco House. Delicious!

     Wednesday's treat was finally finishing my rewrites/editing of 'Delarun' section 1. (Though I'll probably do another read-through in a few weeks to catch any messes from the rewrites.) Sure feels great! I guess my 'reward' is heading off for my second run-through of Hope's Passage... ;)

There's definitely been a food theme here lately. It's nice to hear that you are enjoying it.

I hope everything is going well. It feels like I haven't seen much of you around lately.

*chuckles* Seems funny coming from you, since you haven't posted much over the last month or so. (And your poor writing trackers haven't moved either =( )

Most of my online time's been over at the Windstone Forum lately; there's a lot going on over there, and LJ is quite quiet in comparison.

Too true! I'm very sorry. I should pay more attention to what is said about people in glass houses. Still, I'm glad to hear that everything is okay.

Oh goodness, no need to apologize! I just found it amusing. (And touching that you'd notice and ask.)

There's a heat wave coming, so if I really disappear, it's because my brains boiled out somewhere. ;)

Congratulations on wrapping up your editing! It is amazing how much you pick up that shouldn't be there just by going over the same piece once or twice, isn't it? :)

'Amazing,' or'depressing,' I'm not sure which is the better word. ;) And I always make more messes when I'm doing rewrites, and then I have them to clean up too!

Hope your week's gone well!

I don't know: amazingly depressing, perhaps? :D

It has been a productive week. I am starting to think that I'm allergic to taking breaks or something!

And thanks a ton for the link you gave me, by the way. I could google the information that I need on specfic markets, or ask around, but this is perfect: all the connections that I have been looking for, condensed into one community. I am absolutely thrilled with it!!

Yeah, 'amazingly depressing' might work!

Delighted to hear you're moving full speed ahead. =) And I'm happy that community is helping you out; it really is a nice resource. Hope you're able to get something published!
